The first single to Lady Gaga‘s highly-anticipated fifth album, ARTPOP, is set to drop next month. However, it feels like the only person who isn’t too thrilled about its impending released is the Mother Monster herself.
In a message posted on her social networking site, LittleMonsters.com, Monday, the 27-year-old songstress expressed a rather disconcerting outlook on her new music. She wrote:
ARTPOP as they pry the single from my bleeding fingers. its a scary thing to revisit those things underneath, the pain in your past. but all I found was raw passion. I thought I was destroyed inside. im just ready to fight. start the music.
The “Born This Way” singer accompanied the foreboding note with a stripped-down and makeup-free snapshot of herself sporting dark brown locks, seen above. (Which is frankly more tame than the naked portrait she did for V Magazine.)
ARTPOP is slated to hit stores Nov. 11, while its first single will be released August 19.
